Naegleria Infection

  • Naegleria infection

    Pathophysiology
    Infection from an ameba called Naegleria fowleri that is commonly found in the environment, in water and soil. It is found worldwide, most commonly in warm bodies of fresh water, such as lakes, rivers, and hot springs; warm water discharge from industrial plants; and under-chlorinated swimming pools.N. fowleri normally eat bacteria, but when it enters humans, it uses the brain as a food source.

  • Naegleria infection

    Statistics
    PAM due to Naegleria fowleri has a worldwide distribution and occurs most frequently in tropical areas and during hot summer months. The most distressing aspect is that the fatality rate has remained more than 95%. there have been 133 PAM infections from 1962 through 2014 with only three survivors.

     

  • Naegleria infection

     Treatment
    The treatment of choice is an intravenous drug called amphotericin B. Amphotericin B may also be instilled directly into the brain. Miltefosine is a drug that has shown promise, and it is available through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Treatment should be initiated as rapidly as possible, and immediate consultation with an infectious-diseases expert is highly recommended.
